The gospel for this week is from Chapter 6 of John's Gospel on Jesus as the "Bread of Life."
Like so many stories in this gospel, Jesus teaches from one layer of understanding to another taking us deeper into understanding his gift of himself to us in the Eucharist.
Jesus says, "Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life." "The bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world." "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst." Creighton University
